[ 1993 MBC Drama Awards: Grand Prize winner Kim Hee-ae | Cr:Chosun ]


[kofic] Born in Jeju City in 1967, KIM Hee-ae was still in high school when she was discovered by an advertising agency, leading her to get her first modeling stint in 1978. Her acting debut came in 1983, when she featured in <The First Day Of The Twentieth Year>. She subsequently appeared in her first KBS drama series while she was studying at Chungang University. She was a consistent presence on TV in the 1980s, earning top honors from the MBC Drama Awards and the Baeksang Arts Awards. She worked exclusively in MBC drama series throughout the 90s, while also appearing in the drama film <The 101St Proposition> in 1993 alongside MOON Sung-geun, for which she received Best Actress nominations from both the Blue Dragon and Grand Bell Film Awards. Continuing her successful TV career, she made a much-publicized return to the big screen in LEE Han’s high school teen bullying drama <Thread of Lies> in 2014 as a grieving mother alongside KO Asung. The next year saw her appear in the music biopic <C’est Si Bon>, playing the older version of the muse who inspired the famous folk rock group Twin Folio, alongside KIM Yun-seok. She made another strong impression in 2018 when she starred in courtroom drama <Herstory> (2017) as a travel agent who takes to heart the case of wartime sex slavery victims in their legal fight against Japan. In 2019, she received top billing in the critically praised indie film <Moonlit Winter>, playing a woman travelling with her daughter to meet again her first love.

1970s folk film announces cast

2014/03/10 | 560 views | 0 Comments | Permalink | Source

Korean actors Kim Yoon-seok, Jeong Woo Kim Hee-ae and Han Hyo-joo have been confirmed as the stars of Kim Hyeon-seok's latest movie "C'est Si Bon", according to its distributor CJ Entertainment yesterday.

C'est Si Bon was the name of a popular music lounge located in Mugyo-dong in central Seoul in the 1970s and '80s, famous for its live performances. The legendary folk duo Twin Folio got its start there.

The movie will depict the story behind the foundation of Twin Folio, and will involve a love story around the group's muse, played by Han Hyo-joo when she is young and by Kim Hee-ae a couple of decades later.

The movie is also adding a third, fictional member to the group, who will be played by Jung Woo as a young man and by Kim Yoon-seok 20 years later.

Director Kim Hyeon-seok most recently made the time-traveling thriller "11 AM" (2013). He is best known for the romantic-comedy "Cyrano Agency" (2010) and the Joseon-era sports film "YMCA Baseball Team" (2002).

Kim Hee Ae & Um Jung Hwa encouraging females to not fear falling in love with younger guys through their dramas
Source: STARN News 20140423154518_5357617e36957_1.jpg
More and more females are getting into relationships with guys who are younger then them, and there are two actresses who are leading this trend. They are none other than Kim Hee Ae and Um Jung Hwa, who are each casting in channel JTBC's 'Secret Love Affair,' and channel tvN's 'A Witch's Romance.'

'Secret Love Affair,' which premiered on March 27th, shows a romance that blossoms between Oh Hye Won(Kim Hee Ae) and Lee Sun Jae(Yoo Ah In), who are 20 years apart.
Many people showed huge anticipation for Kim Hee Ae and Yoo Ah In's meet-up, but many others also showed worries about their age gap.
However, Kim Hee Ae captivated the viewers with her elegant beauty from the very first scene, and it looked like she found a perfect part for herself.
Kim Hee Ae smoothly expressed Oh Hye Won's personality, and Lee Sun Jae was attracted by her elegance and confidence.
Just as all of the other typical romance dramas are, the plots are flowing calmly, but constantly, and a great number of viewers are showing great reactions for her beautiful looks.
Kim Hee Ae particularly drew many people's attention by not losing her confidence while doing things that might earn herself reproaches.
Such charming personality naturally attracted Lee Sun Jae, and now that Oh Hye Won is also in love with him, their romance is developing at a rapid pace.
On the other hand, Um Jung Hwa is casting in 'A Witch's Romance,' which premiered on April 14th. In the drama, she falls in love with Park Seo Jun(casted by Yoon Dong Ha).
Um Jung Ha is casting in the drama as a lady named Ban Ji Yeon. She is one of the most charismatic figure in her company, but indeed, she is a quite lovely and charming person.
When alone, she turns dance songs on, dances alone, get drunk, and start making compliments to her own reflection in a mirror to get rid of loneliness.
She sometimes gets moody when she thinks about her ex-lover, who disappeared without any notice before wedding, and Park Seo Jun approaches to help her to get rid of the bad memory.

Um Jung Hwa is showing perfect expressions, and the bed scene that she had with Park Seo Jun became a hot issue among many viewers.
During a press conference for 'A Witch's Romance,' which was held on April 9th, she said, "I really loved Ban Ji Yeon's character when I read through the synopsis for the first time. I thought that it would be fun to play her."
As such, Kim Hee Ae and Um Jung Hwa are encouraging more females to not hesitate falling in love guys who are younger than them.

Congrats to her nomination! The movie sounds too much of a tearjerker for my taste, but Kim Hee Ae's middle name is awesome anyway.
And don't be too sad about her lack of nomination for her role in Secret Love Affair, the drama is critically acclaimed and she's got a roomful of trophies already. Including last year's best actress Baeksang. One more doesn't count, let's have room for others :D

I first know Kim Hee Ae in "Secret Love Affair", and completely fall in love with her's magnificent acting and attractive beauty... It's a pity that she is not nominated for her role in SLA which is an excellent drama and totally distinct from other Korean dramas those I have been watching.
